My Review
Emma's Quest is a cute book aimed at younger children, but it may be a little better for slightly older children. It follows a little girl named Emma, who gets lonely and decides to go on a quest to find some friends. Her mom lets her go off alone, and along the way, she finds a snake, a cow a bear, and a dog.
Each creature is asked if they would like to be friends with Emma, and each time, the creatures worry they may become something else at the hands of Emma (i.e. a steak, a bearskin rug, a handbag, or a "bait" dog). This is a bit dark and maybe not entirely appropriate for younger readers, as I don't think they'd understand the full implications of what happens to these animals in real life. 
I suppose if a young reader is a bit more mature and can have a conversation about things like where steak/beef comes from, or that bears are skinned for rugs, then that's fine. I would definitely suggest having that conversation and explaining that these things happen, and that it's okay to eat meat (in terms of the cow worrying about becoming steak). 
While the story is a bit on the darker side for younger readers, it is illustrated nicely, and the rhyming scheme is easy to read. 
I'd give Emma's Quest 4 stars.
